Programs With Twelve Steps

The Goal Of The 12 Steps

The 12 steps and traditions, known as the Alcoholics Anonymous, is one of the earliest programs designed to help people through recovery and is regarded by many as the yardstick for assessing any program that claims to help people break free from reliance on any substance or alcohol.


Those who came up with the idea of Alcoholics Anonymous established these 12-step instructions to guide people who want to break their reliance on alcohol. 12 Step program traces its roots to Alcoholics Anonymous but is today popularly used by support groups for all kinds of addictions. Many nonbelievers have relied on the 12 Steps describing it very supportive despite the fact that it is strongly spiritual. Room was made for a variety of explanations of the concept according to how people can explain the idea of a God.


The 12 Step approaches are applied to numerous dependence and obsessive conducts going from Cocaine Anonymous to Debtors Anonymous.


Does The Programme Work

The impact of the 12 step program on people cannot be quantified due to the anonymous nature of the group and the absence of investigations to ascertain its impact. Nevertheless, the popularity as well as success stories recounting recovery from addiction indicate milestone progress and position of the program.

12 Step model program is noted for support, encouragement and accountability by those who have been there done and have overcome addiction. This model program fosters unity in diversity during group members' regular meetings to encourage and challenge one another to focus on sobriety.


The Twelve Step Plan With Alcoholics Anonymous

There is no one quick fix it for all method approaches to 12 step program provided the overall objective is achieved regardless of different ways of 12 steps interpretations. As a matter of fact, some aspects are usually reconsidered or challenged individually or as a whole.

These are the Alcoholics Anonymous' 12 steps:

  • We accepted we were weak over the use of alcohol - that it had become an important, unmanageable part of our lives.
  • Belief in supernatural power to strengthen your resolve to walk through the recovery path.
  • Decided to give over our own will and our lives to the trust of God as we see and understand.
  • Soul searching is your first obligation to self evaluation.
  • Revealed the dark aspect of our behaviour to God, ourselves, and others.
  • We offer ourselves ready before our God so he can fix our disease in character.
  • Asked Him to eradicate our inadequacies.
  • Create a list of everyone we have hurt and pursue a path to make things right with them.
  • Made sufficient amends with these people when possible, except when this would harm them or other close to them.
  • Self-evaluation is a continuous process on the road to recovery, and admit wrong.
  • Using the methods of praying and meditating, we seek to improve our own conscious and speak with God as we preserve him, asking only for his knowledge of will and power to carry on.
  • It is our determination to teach alcoholics our resolution and make use of them in our daily lives because we have come to have a deeper understanding of our spirituality because of the steps.

The Twelve Traditions

While the 12 steps is directed to each alcoholic, the 12 traditions is directed to the group. The bible of Alcoholics Anonymous is the so called Big Book which contains the traditions.

A number of 12-step groups have designed their own 12 traditions to suit their circumstance and recovery program.

We can locate a group for you if you give us a call on 0800 246 1509.


Here are the 12 traditions:

  • Our shared well-being should be given priority; individual retrieval is possible with AA unity.
  • God, with his love, is our principal source of instruction in this group according to how He instructs and treats the group.
  • Our own leaders are but disciples; they do not rule over us.
  • Our only requirement is to end our weakness to alcohol and stop the abuse.
  • Every chapter or branch of AA is independent with the exception of matters that impacts other chapters or the entire AA community.
  • There is only one purpose per group, and that is the help those are still under the clutches of alcohol.
  • The objective of the group should not be jeopardized by mundane issues outside the only goal of the group in matters relating to financial issues, as such, AA group will not support any financial transactions outside the scope of the group.
  • AA groups are self-supported and should not solicit outside financial assistance.
  • Alcoholics Anonymous is not a career opportunity, yet the centres engage services of professionals.
  • There is no structural hierarchy in AA but committees can be built to service their members in need.
  • In its entirety, AA expresses no statements or opinions about anything that are subject to public interest.
  • We base our relations policy on attraction over promotion, we should always keep our anonymity from the TV, radio, film and press.
  • Being anonymous is the foundation of all spiritual traditions, keeping us close to remembering to value principles over personalities.
